The Rapture Is Closer Than Ever
“Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord” (1 Thessalonians 4:17).
By the Spirit, the Apostle Paul got the revelation of the rapture of the Church and said, “Behold, I shew you a mystery…” (1 Corinthians 15:51). This is why many don’t understand the Rapture; it’s a mystery; divine revelation. He said, “…We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed” (1 Corinthians 15:51-52).
The above portion shows how fast the Rapture will happen; it’ll be so fast there’d be no time for those who weren’t prepared, because it’s something for which you should have been prepared all your life. The President of the Love World Incorporated, aka Christ Embassy, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, has said the second coming of Christ will not exceed 10 years.
The pastor made this known while using a mathematical formula: “Almighty Formula,” to calculate the date of rapture to his congregation. According to him, we are living in the last days on earth and rapture might happen in three or six years. The Man of God further warned everyone to give their lives to Christ. Pastor Chris said: “If the Rapture does not happen in three years, it might be six years. If it does not happen by then, then it cannot exceed 10 years.”
Last week in Rhapsody of Realities, Pastor Chris explained that at the Rapture, it makes no difference where you are, the power of God will snatch you away from this world. Christians who had died will be resurrected, and together with them, we’ll be caught up in the clouds to meet the Lord. As it is closer than ever; it’s going to be anytime soon. Our responsibility is to be prepared by living our life for the Lord, every day. Keep walking in love, and our faith will be activated to be caught up to be with the Lord at His appearing.
The Bible says He’s coming for a Church without spot, wrinkle, blemish or any such thing (Ephesians 5:27). Live every day, every moment of your life in His righteousness, producing works and fruits of righteousness.
What Must We Do?
At the just concluded Phase V, Season II of the special ‘Your LoveWorld’ series, we witnessed the unveiling of deeper truths on the soon return of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the rapture of the Church by the man of God. The special telecast which kicked off on Tuesday, September 8 and climaxed on Friday, September 11, recorded massive participation from all around the world. The program was transmitted live on all LoveWorld Networks and streamed live via various internet platforms.
With several scriptural references, Pastor Chris drew parallels between current happenings in the world and the imminent return of the Lord Jesus Christ. He enlightened the global audience on where we are in God’s calendar and the closeness of the rapture of the Church. He further emphasized the need for Christians to stand firm in Christ Jesus and not be deceived by certain groups and organizations that try to discredit God and the finished works of Christ in disguise.
Pastor Chris also charged Christians to be more passionate and dedicated to soul-winning, being conscious of what the Church is up against and the brevity of the time left before the Master’s return, stating that “what we must do, we must do now because the time is short.” Fresh passion and zeal to live for Christ and preach the Gospel to every creature with urgency, was reignited in many through these timely teachings by the man of God. Several people also received salvation as Pastor Chris endeavored to make the call for salvation before the close of each session of the broadcast.
Anticipate a more glorious experience in the upcoming phase VI, season II of ‘Your LoveWorld Specials with Pastor Chris’. Get ready for the Global Day of Prayer on Friday 25th of September till Saturday the 26th, a 24-hour period of worship.
